Joel Brown
Architecture and Ceramics

Before he worked in clay, Joel Brown was an architect.  Following study at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard, he managed large scale civic infrastructure projects in New York City and Philadelphia.  In addition to the design work, he developed the details that let contractors construct the buildings. 


Joel credits workshops with Peter Callas, Joyce Michaud, and Steven Hill for his development in ceramics. His pieces are coil-built and wood-fired in kilns that are stoked around the clock for up to six days.  He enjoys the team work that comes with these firings.  His work has been juried into shows across the country, from New York to Florida to Washington.  He has also curated shows that featured both ceramics and paintings.
